You need the factory remote only for this model of set!

Contact the service rep for your set and order a new remote.

As for the service mode, most RCA sets require an external service interface.

In many models of sets, the results and commands are in HEX. You will need the service manuals, hardware interface, and instrumentation to do proper setups and adjustments.

As for accuracy of adjustments, from factory these sets were very accurate. If there are changes, this is due to failing parts, and not from adjustments going out. The setups are all uPC controled and are exact. The set should be serviced to make it work properly, and not adjusted to offset faults.

I locked my front panel by accident and have no remote for my rca 20F514TD..how do I unlock?


Hello
To open front panel control function you must have its Origitnal Remote control. If you have lost it, try to borrow it from your friends or relatives; who owns the same model of TV as you have; just to unlock the front panel lock.

[1] From the PARENTAL CONTROL menu, press the up or down arrow to highlight
Lock Fr. Panel.

[2] Press the right or left arrow to turn on (box has check mark) or off (box doesn't
have check mark) front panel lock.
OK.

Can you turn off the FPA lock without an original remote? If so, how?


If you remember your pass word then you can use any remote that operates the TV to reset the menu selection. However if you don't remember the password, then sorry, the original remote must be used.
Below is the procedure to set up the menu for front panel lock, unlock and the password reset.

Front Panel

Selecting this option lets you lock (disable) or unlock (enable) the TV's front

panel buttons. The remote still tunes to any channel so remember to remove

access to any remote that can operate the television.

1. Choose Parental Control from the Main Menue and press the OK button.

2. Enter your passworcd.

3. Press the down arrow to highlight Front Panel.

4. Press the right or left arrow button to choose unlock (_) or lock (_).



I don't remember my password and I want to unlock the TV

If you forget your password, you must reset it. Make sure the TV is of. Press VOL- (down) on the TV's front panel and then

CLEAR on the remote for approxhnately 5 seconds. The TV turns on. Enter a new password next time you access
the PARENATAL CONTROL menu or the TIME_menu.

I accidently locked my citizen tv and I can't access any buttons


Front Panel Lock

This feature allows you to lock the buttons on the front of the TV. Even when the front panel lock

feature is ON, the TV operates with the remote control.

• To lock the buttons on the front of the TV, make sure the TV is turned ON, then press and

hold the ON•OFF button on the remote for approximately 5 seconds.

• To turn off the front panel lock, make sure the TV is OFF, then press and hold the

ON•OFF button on the remote for approximately 5 seconds. Now the buttons will operate
properly.

FLP stands for -- Front Lock Panel - I found it in a friends RCA TV manual. It is a lock you can place on the tv front panel buttons. When this is locked you can only use the remote. So once I knew that I went to RCA Service Center and ordered a new remote.. problem solved. So since your person couldn't even understand my problem, let alone solve it. I would like a refund please.

Thank you

Hi,

FPA lock stands for Front Panel Access lock similar to Parental Control/Child lock - it indicates that the buttons on the front of the TV are locked so that it cannot be operated accidentally by young children.

You would need to use the remote to deactivate this security feature. Normally, you would go into the Parental Controls menu and turn off the FPA lock.

If for some reason a password was used, then you would have to enter that password since without it you can't get into the Parental Controls menu.

On some versions, you can press "Menu" on the front panel and "Vol -" on the remote simultaneously for 3 seconds to clear the password. in others, it would require that you press and hold at the same time the Vol < button on the front panel and CLEAR button of the remote control for about 5sec. You would need to enter a new password the next time you access the Parental Control Menu.

Usually, steps involve are explained better in the user's manual which is available at the RCA (Support) website. You would need to enter the exact model number of your RCA TV.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have you tried to access the menu features and tried to retune the stations on digital, or are you hooked up for analog.
If you don't know about what i speak, give me a yell. jr@excel.net I believe my remote sensor card is bad. While this might explain why you can't turn yours off, it would not explain the blank picture. If the menu does show, i would think the picture tube is O.K. if the menu does not show, there are some other things to look at.
